There’s no doubt that automatic cars have been gaining popularity in India. Of course, with the ever-increasing traffic conditions and commuting hours, it makes tremendous sense to drive an automatic car. Fortunately, cars with automatic transmission have been available across various price segments, which means buyers can choose as per their budgets and exact requirements. Anyway, here are the best automatic cars in India in both new and old cars markets –
The Renault Kwid has been around for a while and is available in both 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre engine variants. The latter is not even more powerful but even comes with an optional AMT, which makes it one of the best automatic cars in India if you’re in the market for a small, trouble-free vehicle that has some SUV characteristics. Also, the AMT technology ensures that the fuel efficiency doesn’t take a hit, while even the prices of the vehicle stay competitive.
The Maruti Alto has been the largest-selling small car since time immemorial. The Alto, like the Kwid, is available in 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre engine variants, with the latter getting an optional AMT. Again, as in the case of the Kwid, the K10’s optional AMT ensures that fuel efficiency is as good as that of the manual option, while the driver enjoys the convenience of automatic gear shifts.
The Maruti Celerio became the first-ever mass-market car in India to offer an optional AMT. It also became the first-ever sub-compact Maruti car to be available with a diesel engine optional. While the diesel engine option was shelved a couple of years ago, the Celerio continues to be available with the AMT option. The tallboy hatchback shares its engine and transmission with the Alto K10, which means you get similar performance and mileage but a bigger and a more practical cabin.

While the Maruti Vitara Brezza and the Hyundai Venue have been at the top of the sub-4-meter SUV segment, the Tata Nexon enjoys a dedicated set of followers who seem to swear by the modern-looking SUV’s powerful engines, a practical cabin, and many features. The Nexon, which comes with turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, is available with an optional 6-speed AMT, which means you can enjoy the convenience of automatic gearshifts regardless of what fuel variant you choose.
The Toyota Yaris is a Honda City and Maruti Ciaz-rivalling sedan that has not been able to find enough buyers. However, one shouldn’t ignore that the Yaris comes with many best-in-class safety features, a refined petrol engine and CVT automatic option even for the base variant. All this means you can expect top-notch safety and the convenience of an automatic transmission even if you go for the entry-level model.
The Maruti Dzire-rival from the makers of the Honda City entered its second generation last year and became the first-ever model in its segment to be available with CVT automatic transmission with both petrol and diesel engine options. So, here again, you can enjoy the convenience that comes from having an automatic transmission regardless of the fuel variant you choose.
The Maruti Vitara Brezza has been the most successful sub-4-metre SUV ever and comes with the tried-and-tested 1.3-litre diesel engine that produces a maximum power of 90 PS and a peak torque of 200 Nm. The Brezza is available with an optional 5-speed AMT for those who are looking for ease-of-driving without sacrificing the mileage.

The Hyundai Verna has been a long-standing Maruti Ciaz and Honda City rival that comes with many features, along with offering a good mix of outright handling and ride quality. It is available with automatic transmission for both petrol and diesel engine variants.
The Maruti Dzire is one of the highest-selling cars in the country, which is due to the compact sedan’s spacious cabin, frugal engines, good ride quality and low cost of maintenance. Both its petrol and diesel engine variants come with optional AMT for those looking for enhanced convenience without sacrificing mileage.

The second-gen Hyundai Santro was launched late last year and has pretty much failed to find many buyers in spite of offering a sufficiently powerful engine and an optional AMT. Still, it is among the most practical buys due to its spacious cabin, well-sorted AMT and a decent petrol engine.
